Magnalite® Classic® cookware is made from aluminum, an excellent heat conductor that reacts well to changes in temperature. This is essential when you want to precisely control the amount of cooking energy you use.
The cast process allows the cookware to be shaped in various thicknesses where it makes the most sense. The pan bottoms are thicker so they absorb and retain heat well, therefore using less energy. The pan side walls are thin so they distribute heat quickly. The handle connection point is well constructed to provide strength while transferring food from the stove to the table. The lids are thick and heavy to retain moisture.
Heat transference throughout the pan is vital to preparing any dish. Heat needs to be distributed evenly so uniform cooking results are achieved. Magnalite® cookware is precision finished to eliminate uneven spots in the pan surface that may cause uneven heat distribution.
05. What material is Magnalite® Classic® made from?
Originally developed in 1934, Magnalite® Classic® aluminum cookware has varied thickness, maximizing heat conductivity. Extra-thick bases allow heat to travel quickly and evenly up the side walls. Pouring spouts make serving easy, heavy cast lids lock in moisture and cast-in flame guards enhance safety.
